Blues ‘a nice man’
BLUES! BLUES! BLUES!
Those mournful wails filled the air in Bank Hall just after 11 a.m. yesterday when Marleen Knight, who had to be held up by two people, got a glimpse of her lifeless husband of close to 25 years before he was driven off to the morgue.
Selwyn, also known as “Blues”, was killed just before 7 a.m. in a police-involved shooting. The 57-year-old and his son Junior, who was also injured, were reportedly in hot pursuit of a man who had allegedly broken into their Queen Mary Road, Bank Hall, St Michael home a short time earlier before fleeing on foot.
It would be the second time for the morning that the quiet of Dash Gap, Bank Hall, and its environs was broken by loud sounds.
The late sleepers in the district were awakened by gunshots, reportedly as many as five. (YB)
